Undiscovered Gem - Rhododendron State Park

Just across the river, there’s a beautiful park filled with gorgeous flowers.

Rhododendron State Park in Fitzwilliam is a natural stand of Rhododendrons that are in bloom right now.

The park is named after the 16-acre grove of Rhododendron Maximum, which is the focal point of the park. A 0.6 mile-long trail encircles the grove allowing visitors to observe, close up, the fragrant clusters of pink blossoms as they burst into bloom in mid-July.

Other trails, including a special wildflower trail wind through the forest adjacent to the grove.

Rupa Sister Rainbow Dancer

My beautiful loving sister Rupa Cousins has passed on today. I was awake most of the night restless. And there is great peace, joy with sadness in her passing. I wrote this last night and this morning i send this. To all who were touched by her magic, passion and love for life, let us celebrate, Rupa Sister Rainbow Dancer.

Much love Namaya Art Rat Peace and Zoe Kopp

....

"Rupa Sister Rainbow Dancer”

Star of grace who dances from the sky
and landed joyfully on this earth.
Fearless in her truth, she soars and flies.
To a life of joy and love she gave birth.

She reminded us all of the higher love,
and she, the true blessing of the - dove.

Noble laughing presence so rare,
a free spirit who soared and played.
With fearless love she inspired us to care
